This needs to be significantly reorganized in order to function as a literature review. There are aspects that should be placed in other sections of the paper or removed altogether. The discussion on hip hop as a genre and the inability to define it may need to be in the introduction or at least earlier in the lit review. The purpose of a literature review is to indicate the key themes that have been used in discussing your topic in the past and the theoretical framework for the specific analysis that you wish to engage in. This unfortunately doesn’t achieve this in any clear manner. Consider reorganizing the lit review in the following manner: 1. Overview of the existing literature on hip hop broadly with a focus on the most important works, many of which are not currently listed or discussed. Then refine this to the key works on gangsta rap. Discuss broadly what these works have to say about the subculture and the genre. 2. A board discussion of the theoretical framework that will be used in your analysis. It seems like you’re going to use feminist theory, but that discussion is too broad and doesn’t cite the most formative works in the paradigm. You may need to refine it to specifically focus on feminist media theory since you’re covering a musical genre. 3. Discuss in some detail the specific concepts that will be used in your analysis of gangsta rap lyrics.
